OC Update & 9 Week Pics…

OC: Mom has been taking good care of my eye and it is doing MUCH better now. We want to thank all of you for your thoughts and prayers for me. The swelling is way down and so is the red. It still isn’t back to normal and will need the antibiotics, salve treatment and washing for a while yet, but pretty good so far. We were going to post some vids of the “Eye Care Session” here, but Blogger isn’t allowing Mom to upload them, so we’ll try THAT part again tomorrow…

BG: I actually frapped with little Gracie the day before she left... She was so silly! She was inspecting Sadie’s little pool (about 4 ft. around with about 2 inches of water in the bottom) and she suddenly jumped in. Mom turned when she heard this big splash and saw a poor, bewildered looking Gracie peering over the edge.

She jumped back out and then went “cracker dog” as Mango says. (Speaking of which, Mango's not been feeling up to par and could use some prayer...) Gracie frapped (Frantically Running And Playing) all over the front yard for a good 5 minutes or more. She was one MUDDY PUPPY!!! Mom was laughing so hard she started coughing, and it was so silly that Dott, Gimli, Mercy and finally even I joined in with the frapping!

Gracie left to go to her new forever home on Sunday. I think I even miss the little tike… Our next blog will be about our trip to Ojai to take her there.

Dott: And here are the 9 week old pics and statistics for my puppies:

Gimli is getting so big! He weighs a little over 10 lbs. now. You can see how big he is beside me… Grammy calls him her "Handsome Little Man..."

Mercy is 9 lbs. now. She has got a bit of a temper and Grammy has had to get after her for not letting the other puppies eat at the same dish. She has to do a time out while the others get to eat for a minute or two…

And, little Pippin is up to almost 8 lbs. He still acts like he is Mr. Big Stuff and gives as good as he gets in the puppy tussles! In the picture below, you can see how small he still is...

I am glad you are getting better. That little pupper must have been super excited about going to the furever home. That would make anybody go cracker dog.

Thanks for all your good thoughts. I think I just twisted my ankle because I am feeling ship shape again (well except for the construction guys disturbing my meditations).

Thank you for the update. Thankfully these things often look worse than they are!
Still it was scary at the time.
Lovely to see the pups - we are sure Gracie will soon settle in her forever home. She will miss you guys though at first.

The pup's markings are all so nice, each one distinctive. I think your little Mercy is an alpha from the sounds of it.
Really sweet, all of 'em.
So glad that OC's eye is better. You give good care. Is Sadie still on the outs with everyone? You are an in home nurse, and referee!

I'm so glad to hear that OC's eye is getting better! It looks a lot better than it did from your pictures you posted! How is Sadie doing? Are the others still mad at her?
